I recieved a rather nice mail from a guy today. We had been mailing each other for a while. He usually fishes up at towards Kirkintilloch and was finding it rather difficult. Anyway, this is part of the mail…..
…….just thought i’d let you know about my fishing exploits today. i managed to get a lift down to the vet school stretch this afternoon, and fished thereabouts until 7pm. it was really just a fantastic time. completely different from what i’m used to upstream near kirki. i caught more fish than i’ve ever done before in a single session fly fishing for trout, around ten or so, plus quite a few that got off. they all faught like the bananas. as soon as they got near me and i tried to lift them out to unhook off they would tear away again. great sport even on my 6 weight rod. the biggest today was also my biggest trout ever (says more about my past trout record really….) at between half a pound and three quarters of a pound. there was some real fight in that one..!
I think its great when people catch alot fish on the fly , especially when someones actually had a look at my site and got the idea to go to a stretch from myself.
If it changes you know they said no !!!
